Let Slovakia Heritage Tours Connect You With Your Ancestral Roots
I’m Judy Northup-Bennett and I would be happy to talk with you about your family stories and ways you can travel to Slovakia to rediscover your family history. As a founder of the September Slovakia Heritage Tour ten years ago, I enjoy sharing my travel experiences, helping others to discover this beautiful country and culture.. CONTACT me to discuss your travel goals and interest in Slovakia.
Here are 4 suggestions to enrich your ancestral journey…
Arrange to visit ancestral villages and possibly connect with family through pre-tour genealogical research.
Join a small group tour or personalized family tour with a native Slovak guide to share the joys of rediscovering the food, music, dance, language and traditions you fondly remember from your childhood.
Take time on the trip to enjoy Slovakia’s natural beauty from the plains of the Danube River to the rolling, open-grasslands of the Spis region and on to the thick spruce forests of the low and high Tatry mountains…all without traveling long distances.
Set an easy travel pace to give yourself time to reflect and immerse yourself in the sights and sounds: visiting the small village outdoor museums that show us the way our ancestors lived in the late 1900s before they left for America; walking country paths, the streets of ancient walled-cities, and the cobblestones of lively folk festivals; as well as sitting in a café to people-watch and feel the flow of Slovakia today.
